I've been meaning to cover today's topic for a very long time. More to the point to demystify it because Tantric sex is definitely something that most of us have heard of. But for 99% of us, we really don't know what it means or what it's about. We're going to change that today.

Some of the other names you would have heard are Tantra and Neo-Tantra. We're definitely working our way into the realm of advanced sexual skills today. More specifically, sexual skills that are most relevant within relationships.

To cover this topic, we have two guests: Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson, a couple who have been teaching Tantra since 1999 for 15 years. They have run seminars all over the U.S. and all around the world on the topic, and written many books, including two award-winning books on the topic: The Essence of Tantric Sexuality and Tantra for Erotic Empowerment.

As you will see in today's interview, Mark and Patricia are not only very knowledgeable in the field, but also both very open and generous with recounting their own personal experiences, which is always important to make this information real for us and to make it come alive.

It certainly inspired me to dig deeper into this subject myself in the future as we really just started to scratch the surface of Tantric sex and Tantra. So consider this an introduction into Tantra to see if it is a good fit for you and to wet your appetite to learn a bit more about it. It's certainly a topic we will be exploring a lot deeper in future episodes.
